    shot my first handgun last month and now I am the proud owner of a G19! Glad I found this site lots of info and I have lots to learn. So any tips, tricks, or advice you have feel free to share! Esp. if it is about the G19. so far I have learned the basics of load, shoot, and clean but still need lots of range time before I am comfortable carrying.

    I would love hearing from some other ladies on how you carry... besides just a purse as I hate carrying a purse!

    glockgirl, Welcome to GPDO!

    Good choice on the Glock 19. Mine has never failed me.

    Since you don't want to purse carry, this may be an option for you: Smart Carry.

    congrats on the G19.... a great choice... i carry mine everyday... my wife carries a Kahr arms CW9 and she dislikes carrying a purse also, plus if you are gonna carry for protection purse carry may put you at risk from a purse snatch. she carries like her hubby does.... owb holster. works fine for her.

    strangely mine jammed on the 1st round but for the next 5 clips worth no problems.

    i won't be able to carry everyday since I work on a university campus but I figured why own a handgun and not be able to concealed carry. does anyone here know how long it takes to get a GFL in clarke co?

    :welcome: Glockgirl. But don't call them clips. They are mags. Great choice on the 19. My first Glock was the 19. I suggest you go over to
    www.Glocktalk.com and sign up. Alot of great info over there on Glocks.

    Wuzzup GlockGirl,

    I applied in Clarke County on Oct. 17 '06. I got my license Feb. 5 2007. Yup, that's almost four months. Hopefully you won't have to wait that long.

    If you haven't already applied, get ready for an unpleasant experience in the sheriff's office. I think I paid 69. 33 to the probate judge and 36 to the sheriff.

    Have you gotten a membership at the firing lane?

    :welcome:

    G19 is a good gun!! Apply for you GFL and in the mean time get some professional training. www.firearmz.net has some classes geared towards females and some CCW classes that explain (or try to) CC laws in Ga by a pro-gun lawyer, the CCW class goes over what to do and say if involved in a shoot etc. As well as range time. The classes might be alittle far from Clarke Co...you might find some closer but I am familiar with firearmz....

    again welcome to the board

    More training is always good. I recommend the Bianchi Black Widow holster with a thumb break. The main reason is that it is so darn comfortable.

    I'm new to the site, have been reading on some of the topics for some time now and now I am final register to GCO. I just bought a Glock 23 Comp. and applied for my GFL Feb. 21 at Clayton Co. Beening on this site has giving me a lot of information about the Georgia Gun Laws and some other states I also travel to. Later on I will post my experience at Clayton Co. Probate Court.
